2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Miguel Farinha, Fairview

Miguel Farinha is a Grade 7 student at Fairview Elementary (2018/19).

He is known at Fairview as a kind and helpful student who takes on a leadership role. He is always willing to spend time with people and is trusted by all staff to complete tasks with care. He takes pride in his work and works hard to be the best version of himself.

Miguel is constantly preparing for the IB program at Garibaldi Secondary School. He wants to graduate high school at the top of his class and attend UBC or MIT for their engineering programs. His main goal is to become a mechanical or software engineer where he can use his creativity and determination to advance the lives of others.

There is no doubt that Miguel will achieve his dreams if he continues down the path he is currently on. Miguel is a leader in our school, and we are very excited to see him as a leader of tomorrow.

About Leaders of Tomorrow

The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) has teamed up with the Maple Ridge News to celebrate local students who are making a difference at school and in the community. Elementary and secondary students featured as Leaders of Tomorrow were picked by their principals for making positive achievements in academics, sports, arts and community involvement.

The list is just a sample of outstanding students in the school district selected by their school during the 2018/19 school year – there are many others who were equally deserving of recognition for their exemplary achievements both inside and outside the classroom. Every Tuesday throughout the school year, SD42 will profile a student selected as one of the 2019 Leaders of Tomorrow.
